After the deal at Crystalbrook, Jimmy was happy—but, not for long. Two days later he heard from a third party that Knowles had on-sold the cattle for a profit of £600, and was on the road making the delivery.
Hell broke loose in Jimmy’s head. He fled after Knowles, confronted him, and demanded he give the cattle back—or get a bullet in the head.
Knowles stood his ground with the help of a revolver in hand. Jimmy retreated with viper ignominy.
Shaken, Knowles and his mates guarded the cattle vigilantly until they reached Westgrove “fairly done up” by exhaustion and anxiety.
